There is growing awareness that the profound changes in the environment (eg, in diet and other lifestyle conditions) that began with the introduction of agriculture and animal husbandry ≈10000 y ago occurred too recently on an evolutionary time scale for the human genome to adjust.
Random people (some of them actors, others audience members) loafed around on grey bolsters and cushions in the central chill-out zone.
When the environment remains relatively constant, stabilizing selection tends to maintain genetic traits that represent the optimal average for a population (2).
When environmental conditions permanently change, evolutionary discordance arises between a species’ genome and its environment, and stabilizing selection is replaced by directional selection, moving the average population genome to a new set point (1, 2).
